Nestled in the heart of picturesque Emsworth, this Grade II listed gem, The Crown Inn, enjoys an ideal location, a stone’s throw away from the historic cities of Portsmouth and Chichester.

Recently subjected to a comprehensive and affectionate refurbishment, The Crown Inn seamlessly blends its original historic charm with modern comforts, offering a tranquil and inviting atmosphere.
